Spectre38's current gear

Olympus PEN E-PL2
Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6
Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-140mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH Power O.I.S
A very capable second camera.
An amazing camera ! Perfectly engineered for that balance of form-factor, intuitive operation, and size. So customizable, it becomes part of you and you just take wonderful photos without thinking about the camera.
Excellent do-it-all lens, Stopped down, my copy is as sharp as a prime.
Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 II ASPH Mega OIS
Sigma 30mm F2.8 DN Art
Sigma 60mm F2.8 DN Art
A great little lens, very sharp, but I dont use it very much since I got the 14-140. I use the wide angle end because it is super sharp.
Great all around prime - sharp and useful focal length. Good for general photography, indoors, and street photography.
A wonderfully sharp telephoto, but its focal length requires some distance from the subject. It does lack microcontrast though, which I only find in the close up portrait, the eyes lack definition, otherwise it is a great lens.
Other gear:
  • Minolta 58mm 1.4 Good for high iso dark night shots, otherwise I use a 2.8 lens. Very sharp stopped down, soft wide open
  • Soligor MD 28-80 A great lens for macro, but otherwise I would use a modern lens.
  • Tokina 50-250 An amazing lens
